One of the many issues facing Pit Bulls today is the common misconception that Pit Bulls can only be trained using heavy handed, correction based methods. In reality, Pit Bulls respond very well to positive reinforcement training. In addition, methods that rely on physical punishment are cruel, outdated and certainly ineffective for dogs who have been bred for years to withstand high amounts of physical discomfort.
It is an important aspect of our mission to bring humane, effective methods of training to Pit parents everywhere. One of the most basic things we can do is offer alternatives to choke and prong collars. Our Chains for Change program aims to do just that! We now offer free martingale collars (complete with instructions on how to teach your dog to walk on a loose leash) to anyone willing to trade in their choke or prong collars. We also sell front-clip harnesses and Gentle Leaders on our website for those extra strong pullers!
When you purchase a martingale collar from our website, one is automatically made available to someone in need.
If you are interested in trading in your choke chain or prong collar for a martingale, please send your old collar to the address below and include a note stating what size collar you need. If you can, please include $3 to help with shipping costs. Hello Bully's Chains for Change 4885-A McKnight Road #197 Pittsburgh, PA 15237
